Herbal formula clears up acne by cleanzing toxins from the inside out
Since acne and skin blemishes — clinically refered to as Acne Vulgaris — are generated inside the human body and only appear on the surface, we find it strange that pimples, "zits," and other blemishes conventionally treated at the surface. There are many topical acne treatments on the market, both as pharmaceuticals and as natural health remedies. Some of them are quite effective, too. But doesn't it make more sense to tackle acne problems at the source?
Great Wall Herbal's Acne Protocol is specifically formulated to nourish the blood and vascular system in order to enliven the body's natural processes of removing toxins associated with acne. This herbal blend in convenient capsule form also calms the production of oils created by the sebaceous glands, which are the important oil glands that tend to become over active in times of tension or hormonal imbalance — as with puberty, pregnancy, metabolic imbalance or other stresses.
Our herbal acne remedy treats skin problems at the source, not the surface. And it's as easy as taking your vitamins. Give it a try!
omg! totally works!

Do not exceed 6 (six) capsules per day. Store in a dark, dry place at room temperature. Keep out of reach of children.
Aloe vera (leaf): A succulent, stemless plant revered for its powerful healing properties, Aloe vera is often considered "magical," though its healing properties are at least partly due to the presence of saponin, a "secondary metabolite" chemical compound that acts as an antimicrobial agent. Two recent clinical studies also found that Aloe Vera, taken orally, is effective in reducing blood glucose and lowering abnormally high blood lipid and lipoprotein levels, known as " hyperlipidaemia."
Atlantic Kelp (Acrophyllum nodosum): Commonly known as seaweed indigenous to the shallows of the North Atlantic, Atlantic kelp is chock full of iodine, a naturally occurring, metabolism-boosting mineral vital to the healthy functioning of the thyroid gland.

Arctium lappa is also a traditional medicine used to treat rheumatoid arthritis, skin infections, acne, boils, bites, eczema, herpes, impetigo, rashes, ringworm, sore throat, and poison ivy/oak allergic reactions.
Cayenne (Capsicum) (fruit): The active component in plants belonging to the genus Capsicum, in this case Cayenne peppers, is capsaicin. When ingested, capsaicin is used in traditional medicine to increase the production of blood-cleansing heat. In modern medicine, capsaicin is utilized as a circulatory stimulant when taken orally and an analgesic (pain reliever) when applied topically.
Dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) (root): While a common, usually unwanted weed, Dandelion is a powerful herbal medicine with a variety of uses.

Licorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra) (root): The root of the Glycyrrhiza glabra plant is called licorice or liquorice and, aside from a popular candy and ice-cream flavoring, is a powerful herbal medicine. One of its chemical compounds, glycyrrhizic acid, exhibits a strong anti-viral effect and commonly employed in Japan as the treatment and control of chronic viral hepatitis. Studies have shown that licorice extract is an effective treatment for "Melasma," more commonly known as "the mask of pregnancy" that presents as a darkening or uneven tanning on the skin of pregnant women.
Purple Coneflower Extract (Echinacea purpurea) (root): The Eastern Purple Coneflower is a flowering plant in Echinacea family. The medicinal power of Echinacea is widely documented, and the root of the Purple Coneflower is brimming with it. It's specifically known to have antidepressant properties as it stimulates the production of L-DOPA (the feel-good hormone) and boosts the immune system significantly.
Red Clover Extract (Trifolium pretense) (blossom): Trifolium pretense, the humble but beautiful herbaceous known as Red Clover, has been revered in traditional medicine for centuries as the go-to treatment for lymphatic system disorders and ailments. Clinically, its effectiveness is due to the high isoflavone content in Red Clover blossom extract.
Sarsaparilla (Similax officinalis) (root): Containing phytosterols of the progesterone class, the powdered roots of Jamaican Sarsaparilla (known as Rad. Sarzae. Jam.) are used medicinally as a cure for gout in Latin American countries. In traditional Chinese Medicine, Similax officinalis is used to treat skin diseases brought on by hormonal imbalances, including acne, psoriasis and seborrhoeic dermatitis.
Tumeric (Curcuma longa) (root): A herbaceous plant in the ginger family, the root of Tumeric contains a group of molecular compounds called "curcuminoids." Cliniclly, they are diferuloylmethane, demethoxycurcumin, and bisdemethoxycurcumin which are collectively known to possess antimicrobial properties and thus aid the treatment skin sores as well as stomach and liver ailments.
Yellow Dock Extract (Rumex crispus) (root): A flowering perennial native to Europe and Wester Asia, Yellow Docks (sometimes call "Curly Dock") is contains high levels of oxalic acid, which makes it a natural treatment for sores, rashes and skin infections in small doses.
